God's tiny miracle!


kisses
Originally uploaded by gulnaz.

Allah blessed my brother and my family with a lil baby daughter today. I held the wee bonnie lass for a few seconds and it was like holding a handful of roses or candy fluff...she is so soft and tiny and all pink!
She is kept in the nursery today but she is fine otherwise. Though she was born a few weeks earlier and through a C-section, she is a healthy 7-pound and the mama's is fine too! I am sooo happy, quite overwhelmed with emotions, will write about those emotions later, just wanted to share the good news first and thank you everyone for their good wishes. I am quite drunk on happiness right now to compose my thoughts. :)

aahhhhhh! she is adorable. look at her pouty mouth. thanks for sharing and enjoy all the emotions and feelings that go along with it. congratulations to your family :) and her name is??

mermaid said...

What's her name? Sorry, that may be personal. Hey Gulnaz, what are the literal translations of Sahil and Aman. Don't know whether mine is a boy or girl yet. I've got the girl's name, but a boy's name is hard.

She is sooooo CUTE!!!

Lorena said...

ooops, my apology if asking for the name is too personal. (read mermaid's comment) just a habit when i'm introduced to a newborn.
i'll just call her cutie pie ;)

luthfi said...

Mubarak Ho..!
You have become aunty.
Iam pleased to read your emotions. I know you felt it as Iam too a father of three little little daughters. Their names are Atoofa (means loving); Safaa Haania (means pure happiness); Afrah Zainab (victory happiness).
Name your cute little behenji with meaningful names. Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him ) stressed to name the children with good names.

neel said...

Joel, yes, i plan to do that, was telling her parents too. with the net and tv, it has to be inculcated and nothing better than a story read. Dad has already got her a beautiful illustrated dictionary for her. :) as a kid he would record us stories on tapes for the times when he was travelling and he has a beautiful, expressive voice too. thanks! :)
